I don't know about you, but here at your days by design things are feeling a tad chilly. I finally dusted down my trusty winter boots after trying to put it off for as long as possible and my winter coat has made its way out of the wardrobe. Whilst shops are stocking up on winter warmers and nights are drawing in, I thought I would try and warm us all up as we focus on all things bright for those brides that can still feel the sand between their toes and are looking for inspiration for a tropical themed wedding.
Whether you're planning a destination wedding to warmer climates or transforming a venue closer to home, tropical prints provide a colourful backdrop full of personality for those couples that want a more vibrant colour scheme.
I find all good design is contagious, with the 2017 tropical trend starting on the runways with the likes of Marc Jacobs and Prada experimenting with bold tropical prints. This then transferred to our homes showing up in interior design on fabrics and wallpaper and it was only a matter of time before these influences would filter into wedding styling.
Now nobody's saying you turn your venue into a jungle, but little details go a long way and you can pick up the theme in your choice of stationery as well as flowers and table centres. Why not try using palm leaves in your bouquet with bold coloured flowers to really stand out and tie it all together. Or if you really want to get your guests talking, go bold with pineapple table centres.

We believe that all couples deserve a wedding stationery suite that is perfectly tailored to them and the style of their big day, so as well as our bespoke design service we also offer customisable designs that can be changed to suit any colour scheme free of charge. So if pink isn't doing it for you, then tell us what is and we shall customise the design to fit.
You can see how each colour looks completely different, especially when teamed with different envelopes and paper stocks. So even if you're on a budget and can't stretch to a complete bespoke design, we've got you covered.
Take a look at this idea if you want your colours a little more muted. The bold purple creates a contrasting backdrop to the earthy shades of green and orange which allows for a completely different look than the previous citrous colours of bright strawberry pink, orange and lemon.
By swapping out crisp white or coloured envelopes and replacing them with earthy kraft ones, you can see how this helps to tone down the colours whilst still keeping the bold tropical design.
This teamed with the rich purple background, completely transforms the original white design, so that despite choosing our custom range, you still get to feel like everything has been tailored to you.
